The World Below: A Novel of the Far Future | [S. Fowler Wright]

The World Below: A Novel of the Far Future

When George is transported to a far-future Earth, he finds himself caught between two very different species of humanity: the Amphibians, dwellers of the deeps, who can also maneuver on land; and the giant Dwellers, rulers of the large island that constitutes the surviving major land mass, whose main settlements lie deep beneath the surface. With the help of one of the Amphibians, George goes looking for any sign of two earlier time-travelers, neither of which has returned.

Publisher's Summary

When George is transported to a far-future Earth, he finds himself caught between two very different species of humanity: the Amphibians, dwellers of the deeps, who can also maneuver on land; and the giant Dwellers, rulers of the large island that constitutes the surviving major land mass, whose main settlements lie deep beneath the surface. With the help of one of the Amphibians, George goes looking for any sign of two earlier time-travelers, neither of which has returned - and in the process must survive the strange flora and fauna of this brave new world yet to come.

One of Wright's most imaginative and compelling novels, The World Below still captivates the reader, eight decades after its original publication.

    Story
    "What did I do to deserve this?"
    What disappointed you about The World Below?

    The story seemed to have a lot of promise but the language used was so stilted and odd that listening to it drained me and I just couldn't force myself to finish the second half. I wish I could get my money or time back.


    Would you ever listen to anything by S. Fowler Wright again?

    I would have to be convinced.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Yes, it sparked anger, sadness and disappointment...


    Any additional comments?

    I previewed this review and thought I might have been a bit harsh, I went back and listed to some more of the story, up through chapter 24, and remained unhappy and bored with it and convinced that it was not for me.

    I don't know if I will choose an unrated book from an author I haven't read again.
